The lower canyon is very wadeable this time of year. In some respects, it's the best way to go, because you'll have opportunity to get in the car and warm up. There's nothing but access in the lower canyon, and plenty of good fishing. The "lower canyon" is the water between Ellensburgh and Yakima. The good spots are relatively easy to find; the trails are well worn. Where you can, find wadeable water that gives you shots back at deeper water along the banks. Streamers, bead-head princes, brassies, or baetis and/or midge dries (if you get lucky).

One more thing: It is NOT safe to float moving water like the Yakima in a float tube, under ANY conditions. A pontoon boat is one thing, but NEVER go into moving water with your legs dangling. :TSKTSK
